Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – September 5, 2018
I loved working at Sony. We had a lot of amenities on the lot; such as a free gym, commissaries, coffe shops, emporiums, etc. Great place to work. Really good vibes. Exciting environment to be in. Every company will have its struggles with management, finances, etc. But I loved that Sony had a strong HR group that made it their prerogative to better the organization. Friendly people. Lots of energy. Great vibes all day everyday :)
Coordinator GMS (Current Employee) – Culver City – August 26, 2018
Similar to the content distributed Sony Pictures is average at best. Its culture isn't one for promoting within nor for rewarding extra effort. Most managers expect their teams to work very hard for little thanks or recognition and with cost savings as the top priority a 'you can be replaced' mentality has permeated.
Photo Editor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 13, 2018
Probably one of the worst places I've ever worked. The management seems unwilling to change and exploits their lower end workers. The company itself pays well but you have to deal with the bad company culture which makes you question whether the pay is worth it.
Distribution (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – August 6, 2018
Too many layoffs happening. There is no such thing as job security right now. Employees are very confused, so many lay offs and changes are happening and employees don't know when it will stop. Too much politics.
Manager, Field Publicity & Marketing Partnerships (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – July 9, 2018
Coming from a large, thriving company, the culture felt secretive and separatist. Not a good fit for me, but it might be great for someone transitioning from a small company or someone who prefers less collaboration. Also there are some very smart people I felt lucky to meet.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – June 18, 2018
I was laid off 20 days before bonuses came out and even though I worked the entire year and EARNED that bonus, they didn't give it to me. COLD! They made me sign a form saying that they weren't obligated to rehire me in order to get a severance.
Director (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 10, 2018
Very top-heavy, with little attention paid to the "grunt workers" greasing the wheels. Schedules are flexible, gym on-site. Turnover has been rampant due to the structural changes taking place. So much potential here but the leaders at the top can't see the forest for the trees. Lots of talented, smart people at this company.
Technical Integration Specialist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 4, 2018
At Sony you will face a heavy top loaded structure with limited appetite for change but a rhetoric of advertising themselves for change. There are many opportunities and good people there, but if you have an ambitious, creative and progressive attitude this might not be the place for you.
Worldwide Product Fulfillment Consultant (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – May 4, 2018
I learned a lot at Sony and liked my position in Worldwide Product Fulfillment (WPF). The culture and management were great. It was definitely a perk to work on the lot where you have plenty of room to walk around in the sunshine, be social, and eat! Plus, you might see some stars around if you keep your eyes peeled.
